Host Homes and Transportation Help

If you are a member of New Life and are willing to open your home as a temporary shelter to other church attenders who may need a place to evacuate, please contact Dana Williams at [email protected] immediately.

More specifically, we have roughly 50 international students at ODU that our church ministers to who are in need of shelter. If you are able and willing to house 2 or more of these students, please contact Pastor Doug Chandler directly at (757) 577-3739 or email him at [email protected].

Finally, if you have a pickup truck and are willing to be on standby if there is a need to help our members get out of their homes, please email Dana Williams at [email protected].

May God’s mercy, grace, and protection surround your homes and family and cover our region.
